Re.verse takes you on a vibrant instrumental journey through classic and current urban anthems - hip hop, r&b, future funk, breaks, neo-soul, trap, house, tropical - unforgettable gems that have paved our music's past, blended with beats that are now shaping our present and future, all recreated in a way you've never quite heard by a live band before. Treating their one of a kind trio of drums, 6-string electric bass and guitar (or occasionally keys) as much like a seamless DJ set as they do a live concert, Re.verse is constantly refining and diversifying their signature sound. With years of practice blending and mashing up familiar hits and deeper cuts on the fly while lacing their sets with spontaneous freestyle beats they make up on the spot, re.verse weaves in and out of genres and eras with ease, using their deep knowledge of jazz and improvisation to help connect the dots and draw parallels between sounds both similar and diverse. With a comprehensive ever-growing catalogue of 120+ hand-picked
covers, they always manage to capture the essence of timeless songs while reworking them as unique adaptations that carry their unmistakeable instrumental flavour. Re.verse delivers an extraordinary live music experience that will captivate any audience, but also let's you zone in or out as you please, keeping the flow smooth and the vibe intriguing without skipping a beat.
